Do some democrats regret that their party has become so left-wing?

Question by holeymoley: Do some democrats regret that their party has become so left-wing?
The democrat party has always embraced Republican Teddy Roosevelt’s “New Nationalism.”
In a speech on August 31, 1910 in Osawatomie, Kansas TR laid out his agenda for a welfare-state, including:
-A National Health Service
-Social insurance, to provide for the elderly, the unemployed, and the disabled
-Limited injunctions in strikes (unions have always been a privileged class in welfare/socialist states)
-Federal income tax
-An inheritance tax
As to how his agenda would affect our Constitution? He couldn’t have cared less:
”This, I know, implies a policy of a far more active governmental interference with social and economic conditions in this country than we have yet had, but I think we have got to face the fact that such an increase in governmental control is now necessary.”

Democrat President Wilson (1913-1918) said, “You are not here merely to make a living. You are here to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, and with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world. You impoverish yourself if you forget this errand.” He may have been the first democrat to appreciate the potential use of multiculturalism (“If it’s white or American, trash it!”) in deconstructing the Constitution, saying, “No nation is fit to sit in judgment upon any other nation.” Obama put it this way: “Every nation is exceptional in its own way.”

Democrat President Roosevelt “let it all hang out” in his speech before Congress on January 11, 1944:
“We have accepted, so to speak, a second Bill of Rights…” [which included]:
-The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation
-The right of every family to a decent home
-The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health
-The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment.

LBJ’s Great Society became the largest redistribution of wealth program in our history. Obama is trying to “outperform” LBJ.

It is only because of the Internet, talk radio and Fox News (all non-existent a generation ago!) that we are learning the truth about the democrat party and how effective it has been in replacing our Constitution with its welfare state model:
-2/4/10 Gallup poll: 61% of liberals have a positive view of socialism.
-6/2/11 Gallup poll: 71% of democrats favor re-distributing wealth.
-9/6-9/2012 http://www.gallup.com/poll/157481/majori… Those who believe government should have more control over our lives: Republicans 15%; Independents, 29%; Democrats 67%.
-Now they have national health care, the foundation of all welfare and socialist states.

  1. Left-wing by what standards? The Democratic Party is not only far to the right of most European conservative parties, it is to the right of where the Republicans stood only 20 years ago.

    Personally, I really wish the Democratic Party were full of Marxist socialists. Nothing would delight me more, and it would be good for American democracy to have a real choice between the main parties. But the simple fact is, on economic policy there’s not a lot of difference between the two main parties in the US.

  2. if you work for 50 years on breadline wages like most of the working class,
    you will not have any savings to fall back on and these government bastards
    want to means test every little penny that might be in your allready empty
    pocket, hang all polititians now before its to late and send the bankers
    with them.

  3. This fkn govt need ‘OUTING’. They are corrupt through + through imo (of
    course) + r trying to totally destroy UK so as to bring in their NWO + new
    EU Global money system. This is was against the people +if you’ll have any
    sense you’ll give same in response! Power 2the people !

  4. The problem is that a cultural change of not dumping granny with the state
    when she isn’t productive needs to be enacted. In welfare whore, no
    families Britain, this isn’t going to happen.

  5. I don’t need to wait to own a house to know that if you need to purchase
    end of life care but cant afford it because you bought a house instead of
    saving for such an eventuality, having to sell your house to pay those
    bills because thats the most valuable asset that will cover the cost, is
    exactly normal. Buying a house doesnt make you special. You have no paid
    through the nose for NHS unless you are a very high earner then you WILL
    have paid a lot for your share of the national health program.

  6. my blood is boiling over the system we live in the government do nothing
    but cause us more red tape and hassle in everything we do if that is we are
    allowed to do it in the first place pfff and its gonna get worse when more
    peoples come over from the main land..services are crap now its gonna be a
    disaster

  7. so why the hell should you not sell your home if you need thr money for
    care? i dont get why people think if they buy a house that means tjey win
    it forever lile some fuxking prize. no. you bought it and now you need
    money so you sell it. derp.
